Mixing Metals

9.24.2017

How's your weekend going? It is summer like here again even though the calendar says it's fall. I'll be so glad when it cools off again and it looks like that happens the first week of October.
 Before I share the master bath reveal I wanted to share some bathrooms that use a mix of metals. Instead of using all polished nickel or all brass, etc. you can mix things up by using two or more of these together.

This bathroom from lonny.com and uses brass lights, gold toned mirror, a chrome faucet and towel ring.

This one from A Well Dressed Home via Decorpad uses a chrome or a polished nickel faucet and accessories, brass lights, and decorative knobs.

This one from Jillian Lane again mixes chrome and brass.

 Mary Ann at Classic Casual Home designed this powder room for a client using nickel and brass. 
I even asked Mary Ann, when I was choosing the fixtures for our bathroom, if it was okay to mix the finishes on the metals as I needed a professional opinion and she told me she normally mixes the metals. 
Thank you Mary Ann for your advice. It made my choices easier.


Have a great day while I get back to editing bathroom photos!

  1. I love mixed metals! In my new house I am mixing brass and polished nickel in both the master bath and the kitchen! Looking forward to seeing your bath reveal.

  2. When we remodeled our master bath four years ago I could not find any photo inspiration showing antique brass lighting with chrome or nickel faucets and shower fixtures anywhere on the internet. I agonized about using the antique brass lighting I fell in love with with chrome faucets. I knew I did not want brass faucets so in some ways it was a logical choice. I went ahead and did it and also added the brass in the towel bars, robe hooks and drawer pulls. I used the appliance size pulls on a large linen cabinet. Once my bath was complete I began seeing kitchens with mixed metals and now bathrooms.

  7. You would love my house. Whoever built it in the late 1950's put brass knobs throughout. The bathroom fixtures, some of which are still in use are chrome. So, the doorknobs on the bathrooms are chrome on the bathroom side, brass on the hallway side.

  9. 91 in Ohio, our weekend is hot!!!! Love the mixed metals. I am doing my bath with chrome, bronze and shiny brass door knobs. As someone mentioned before, left from the 70's, not my choice. Bronze goes with bedroom or it would be flat brass.

  11. I think there is no right/wrong - it's a personal choice. To me, it depends on the room/house and what the people living there like. Follow your gut. LOL
